From field to fabric: cotton goes through a complex production process and is touched by many different hands in the supply chain before it can be transformed into the clothes you wear.

Join this event to explore the environmental and social challenges of cotton production, and the complexity and diversity of cotton farming, which underpins the fashion industry.

We'll shine a light on some of the common sustainability challenges we hear about the fashion industry, before looking at the importance of cotton for farmers and their families.

With help from our speakers, we'll share insights from workers in the global supply chain, and examine what responsible consumption looks like for Western consumers, alongside the demands of fast fashion.
